A teenager seeks glory with General Custer but instead finds a dream gone awry in this "American masterwork" set in 1876 Montana Territory (Howard Frank Mosher). Eighteen year-old Allen Winslow is living what should be every young man's dream. Thanks to his mother's charming intercession, he is to ride with the legendary Seventh Cavalry led by Gen. George Custer himself. Traveling west, he meets Addie Grace Lord, whose brother is one of Custer's regimental surgeons, and the pair falls in love on their journey. As much as Allen wants to make something of himself on the untamed frontier, he soon wants to stay with Addie even more. But neither Allen nor Addie can know where their destinies lie-and neither can foresee the epic events about to tear them asunder. Beautifully written and filled with unforgettable characters both fictional and factual, Little Bighorn brings the American West and its heartbreaking history to life, brilliantly portraying the flawed and tormented Custer.
